Aaron Storey is a Reliability Engineer and has developed his career since joining Nufarm as an apprentice.
My interest in engineering was generic, I didn’t have enough knowledge to know exactly which trade I wanted to go into (mechanical/electrical). I was interested in engineering because I loved fixing things!
I’m currently driving improvement in several areas:
- Analysing how we look after our equipment to ensure it is reliable and consistent
- Identifying ways in which our systems can better enable us to execute engineering works more efficiently
- Implementing methods where we understand equipment failures and put into place actions to minimise the possibility of it happening again
After a 4-year apprenticeship I qualified as an engineer in 2012. Since then, I have held many roles across varying areas of engineering and manufacturing operations, this has enabled me to develop myself in several areas inside and outside of engineering. I am currently in the final year of my master’s degree in Manufacturing Leadership, I hope to use this qualification along with my experience to challenge myself in embarking upon the next steps of my career. My ambition is to make a difference in the business, striving for excellence and sustainability.
I really enjoy working in a complex manufacturing environment is exciting, engaging and challenging. No two days are the same which creates a fantastic learning environment. I often find that problems are unique, this results in situations where I’m constantly exploring and learning different things. I love this challenge as it means you are never bored at work!
Every person you work with or meet is friendly and approachable, this creates a frictionless environment where teamwork is naturally the approach to working. Being surrounded by good people is a major benefit of working for Nufarm.
If you’re thinking of applying for a career at Nufarm be yourself, be honest and be open minded. Seek and accept help from as many people as possible as you can always learn something from somebody.
